  • The Playland was surprisingly good! They had a ton of rides and games to choose from but I thought that the price was to high! I i can get a season pass to six flags for the same price for one night a...  read more »
  • This place looks really really cool and I can't wait to come back when it is opened. We were there the 3rd weekend in September. I think we just missed it. There were still some food vendors open arou...  read more »
  • This is not a 5 flags theme park: It's rather closer to the Santa Monica Pier in CA. It's totally old fashioned (I used to ride the kiddy ones when I was a kid. I am now 40ish and they are the same!!)...  read more »
  • Honestly probably the perfect all season fair/park for all your amusement needs. This little is the ideal place to bring your kids on a weekend and let them just run wild while you and your other half can go for a nice dinner on the pier and finish the night off with a nice stroll on the beach. The rides here are mild and a comfortable range of kiddie to medium-fast. Regarding food you get a good pick of different vendors with hot dogs and fried everything. The Pier offers a good amount of small ocean view restaurants ranging from pricey to simple. The only con I would have to say is the prices of the all day ride passes which will run you at about 30$ or so. Considering the amount of rides its a bit much. So go here on a good day where the sun is out and you will most likely get no lines and be able to leave and enter the playland as you please with no trouble and you have a guaranteed night filled with fun and romance.
  • The beach is BEATIFUL!! And very clean! And the pier/amusement park is good old fashion family fun!! Like a visiting carnival that doesn't leave! Dickinson's candy is a must stop for those that want to treat their "sweet tooth" with quality treats!!
  • Palace Playland is a fun family spot right next to the Old Orchard Beach pier. It's more kid-focused than some of the larger theme parks, which might not be appealing to some adults. However, the big advantage over the bigger parks is that adults don't have to pay to get in. There is no price of admission, only a price for rides. This makes it a cheaper option for families who are content to wander around eating fair food and watching their kids go on on rides. Although the rides and attractions aren't as adult-friendly as the bigger parks, it does have some adult rides, as well as a decent-sized arcade. It's also right around the corner from restaurants, bars, shops, and the beach. Overall, a great place for a relatively affordable family outing.
  • Not what it used to be. Developers continue to degrade the town with ugly, expensive condos. Most of the pinball games are gone, most of the old school video games are gone. The trend is ticketed games that take quarters at an alarming rate and you get a candy bar for 20 dollars... when the rides give way to condos, this area will be done for tourism. Glad PP is still surviving, however. I give them credit. I hope you and your family can make memories here, like I did years ago.
  • The atmosphere and the rides are fun. A basic selection of rides but there is something for everyone. I didn't like the arcade though. A real rip off. Lots of junky prizes.
